Has anyone seen the latest GTA IV controversy regarding the full frontal male nudity in its expansion pack that is/was released today?

This kid Griffin was in my Italian class last spring and we have several mutual friends. I just saw on my news feed, "Griffin washed his phone with his pants!"
I want to say something smartassy like, "Are pants generally a good cleaning agent?!"
Harhar. I'm lame.
What is your favorite song by them?
I am going to see them in less than 2 weeks so I have been listening to them a lot! :D:D
Anyway do any of you have any good suggestions about LJ or other websites that are DIY without being too boring? we want some good suggestions on how to decorate and make things for ourselves without needing too many tools or experience and we want things to look pretty modern, etc.
we're also interested in recycling a lot of items in new and interesting ways in order to be more sustainable. any good LJ groups or sites for that?
what are some of the most creative things that you have recycled and remade into decorative accessories or furniture?
What should I do?

What have your experiences been like?
I've worked for them since November, had an unsatisfactory experience as a customer, posted about it in the Guide forum and the mods BAHHHHHHHLEETED that shit because, essentially, they don't allow anything that might tarnish ChaCha's reputation. I like them for the most part, but I'm wondering if any customers have had any issues with questions or if any guides/expediters/whatever have had issues with the company itself.
Inspired by earlier post where it was assumed the Red Cross will call you if you have an STD
Is the font size too small for the community rules, or are people just fucking retarded?
EDIT: Just saw it. Just when I thought it couldn't get any worse, they added SPACE MONSTERS. I AM NOT KIDDING YOU. FUCKING SPACE MONSTERS!
I was disappointed with Kite, as at first it seemed like it might be a cool vigilante plot, but once you find out the stuff at the end, it just makes no sense at all. OMGSPOILERSOMGDONTREAD PASTHERE
She could have killed Akai at any damn time while he was off guard, even resorting to poisoning him and the big guy at the same time. Plus, continuing to have sex with him and killing people that she knows are innocent is BS.
And why do they even put the hentai in there? There isn't enough to make a legit hentai movie, and it's too explicit to have any value.

So last night at my Equine Evaluation class we had an exam - part of it was a written exam and the other part was giving oral reasons. I walked into the room to give my reasons and my instructor looked at me oddly and declared that I need a nickname. It was fairly random and I was slightly confused so I just kind of stared back and went, 'huh?' Golden then told me that I look like I need a nickname. I have to leave for my Equine Science class in a few and he's also the instructor for that course. I'm kind of nervous about what his nickname for me might be...

I've been sick since a couple nights ago. I have a bad cold/sore throat/fever/aching muscles thing going on. I've been in bed for the past two days. :(
What do you suggest?!
I work first and need to sleep and night and my husband works 3rds and needs to sleep during the day.
Do I go over there and talk to them?

I found a guy on craigslist who quoted me a flat rate of $285 for two guys and a truck. I should just drive behind them to make sure they don't take off with my shit while my husband drives in his car as well and take my fucking chances, Y/N?
Added incentive : There's no vendetta thread calling him out as a rip off artist and he sounded very professional on the phone.
Also, should Jill have to make a claim on her own policy for coming tumbling after Jack, or is Jack also liable for her injuries?
When you have a wound that's oozing a little, should you keep it bandaged to keep germs out or should you let it breathe so it can dry out?
I went to the doctor yesterday and I was given a care sheet. He told me to change the bandage as needed but I forgot to ask the above question. I also want to add that the gauze stuck to my wound when I removed it to shower today and I had to soak it to peel it off little by little. I have the feeling it wouldn't have happened if my wound was dry when it was applied. I'm afraid of this new gauze sticking again because it's painful as you can imagine.
ETA: I got finally got an answer but to keep with the rules...
Will you tell us about the last time you got hurt?
If you do watch it some times, are you going to watch "Little Miss Perfect" tonight?
It's about the little 5 year old girls whose moms make them do pageants -- spray tanning, veneers... the whole shebang. I think I'm going to watch it, even though it's very sad.
Or she was until I tried to install service pack 2 on it so she could download MSN messenger and we discovered her copy of Windows XP is a ripoff. Which I really wouldn't give a rats ass about except now it's going to lock her out in 12 days. I didn't even know they could do that!
Anyway, I think it's the responsibility of the seller to provide a genuine copy of Windows XP. I don't think it'll happen, but I think it's what should happen. Maybe I'm bias because it's my poor sweet mother though, so...
Who is responsible for replacing the bad copy of xp?
What is the next concert you're going to?
I am not feeling sick at all and have no pain and have sustained no injuries to my kidneys. Going to the Dr. this afternoon but what are your guesses?
Can you please give me more motivation to do my laundry?
2. Also, a screencapping script/add-on/something that will cap the page at a normal size? Screengrab makes tiny, tiny pictures that are useless to me unless I upload them to a host like Photobucket. The idea is that I'd like to screencap posts for keeping on my PC as one image so that if they are deleted later I still have them. I've been using the "Save Page As" and saving as a complete webpage, but then it has to have a separate folder where it saves all the images in the post and it eats a lot of space. :(

If you were called on to help with some kind of big event, would you rather be the emcee or someone helping set up / organize behind the scenes?
I have a Bachelor's degree but I do my best at customer service jobs. I have an office job thing right now and I can't stand the bureaucracy and just sitting around all day in general, but I know that working as a cashier and things like that are things I could actually do well, not just passably.
What is so wrong with wanting to do what I know I'm capable of doing rather than becoming a professional just for the reputation? Why do people keep insisting that I need to go after my dreams (whatever those are, because I don't really have any) instead of being realistic about my life?
I don't think I've had to do something like this since freshman year of high school.

I interviewed for an admin. role with a branch of the government once; and the lady who interviewed me spent most of the time talking about the way I'd laid out my CV - "Oh, you don't see orange much on CVs, that's very interesting...you know, you could have centered this text rather than aligning it to the left...is this Tahoma? One of my favourite fonts...10 point? Or 11 point? Hmmm, nice...". The rest of the time, she spent grilling me about how good a secret-keeper I was because a lot of the things the branch dealt with were "confidential, extremely confidential - do you understand? Very, very private...". They weren't even a particularly interesting part of the government either, it was like the Department of Planning and Development or something. I wasn't offered the job.
Has your job been affected by the economic downturn?
Yes! I was made redundant on Thursday.
I am not a vegetarian but would like to only meat/fish 1-2x a week.
So I am looking for some help on finding sites and LJ communities that have quick healty/vegetarian recipes. I am Middle Eastern so I would like a variety of different foods from other countries.
But once again, I am not a big foodie. I don't know how to cook and I am just starting out but I am kind of getting tired of just making beans, rice, and soup ;) I go to school full time and work part time, so I just need quick ideas that are relatively easy to cook and don't require all types of ingredients
please give me any and all your favorite sites and LJ communities. Thanks!!

2. What would be the biggest reason to tell (or not tell) Zack the truth?
3. Everyone in Zack's extended family knows that Kayla gave birth to him. Is it better just to tell him the truth before crazy uncle Sam lets it slip one day when Zack is 24?
Yes, this is a real situation.

If so, how long did it take? What happens when you bring the cat with you on a trip (does the cat use the hotel toilet, for example)?

This was inspired by an earlier post, but.... someone who tips poorly would really turn me off. I went to a bar/grille with this guy once, and the bill came out to be 40 something, so he tipped the standard amount, but the bartender had given us a round of free beers -- and I'm not talking about miller lite, either. We were both drinking Smithwick's. I was irritated that he didn't leave her at least a few dollars more.
Yeah, but I keep hearing it pronounced "puh-tick-yew-ler."
I teach grade 8 Language Arts and Social Studies. I have a SmartBoard in my classroom. If you don't know what that is, it's an interactive whiteboard. Basically, a big touch screen.
I have this routine where my kids come into my class and do an attendance question on the SmartBoard. Here's a photo:

They move their dot to the answer that corresponds with their opinion. Though I often like to relate the question to whatever we're learning that day, sometimes, I'm not able to do that. So sometimes I ask questions about their favourites or a controversial issue or an opinion about something.
So, do you have any ideas for questions I can ask my grade 8s? It needs to be a question with multiple choice answers.
Not for me :(

I'm sort of considering making Jello, and adding some of the cream before I put it in the fridge to set.
Would this be interesting/possibly delicious, or just a waste of Jello mix and cream?
ETA: I tried it with just a bit of the Jello, and it was good, though not as good as I'd hoped. Then again, I also put it in the freezer rather than the fridge due to impatience, so maybe that's why it set? It had the normal Jello-y consistency though.
